Need help troubleshooting my gaming system.

Good evening people!
So, I've been having problems with the framerate in some games, specifically Battlefield 4 and Wildstar. I am an AMD user and admittedly Wildstar isn't optimized for AMD but Battlefield 4 is.
Framerate in BF 4 is around 25-35 when in heavy combat (lots of particles around) and 12-17 in Wildstar (again lots of particles).
Now my knowledge in gaming systems specifically is limited but I think my system is better than that and I just want to know your opinion.
Details:
Processor: AMD Phenom II x4 965 3.4 GHZ black box
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P
Graphics Card: Radeon HD7790 2GB. Core Clock-1075Mhz, Memory Clock-1500Mhz
Ram: 8GB
Os: Windows 7 64bit
So, do you think I should set up a new system and/or go for intel this time?
Thanks a lot for taking the time to help me out.

PS I've tried every settings preset and the increase in fps is either non-existent or
non-noticeable.

    Your system is older, and these newer games are exposing the deficiencies. The Phenom II was new back in 2010.

    If you have the money, an Intel Core i5 is a great processor for gaming. If you want a more budget build, AMD FX8350 or 8320 are viable options.

    Ok awesome I was trying to hold on to a last hope that there might be a software issue but I guess it's time for an upgrade.

    Thank you for your time :).
